]The PanelPilot range from Lascar Electronics is a unique series of smart graphic displays that enable the creation of fully bespoke interfaces without writing a single line of code. From e-paper to full colour high resolution touch screens, they are perfect for simple applications or even as full process-controlling HMIs.
The top of the range PanelPilot ACE is a unique platform ideal for rapid development of touchscreen machine interfaces and system monitoring displays. Available in 4.3” and 7” versions, ACE uses Lascar’s own Design Studio software that allows app development using an intuitive drag and drop interface. ACE display units accept inputs including 4-20 mA analogue, direct digital I/O, RS485, CANBUS and MODBUS. There are also digital alarm outputs and a built-in PWM generator.
The Design Studio software contains powerful tools such as PID, maths and logic builders, multi-channel data logging and graphing.
Lascar’s online PanelPilotACE University shares templates and graphics to use in your display project as well video tutorials for basic and advanced users.
Next in the PanelPilot line-up is the M series, versatile units available in 2.4”, 2.8” and 3.5” models. This range includes versions that are suitable for voltage or current inputs, and also products that are sealed to IP67.
The M series are programmable panel meters featuring dual analogue inputs, alarm outputs and colour touchscreen displays. Configured using the free PanelPilot M Software, there over 50 app templates available including bar-graph, tank level, analogue style and trend graphs. Users can customise colours, text labels, units and input scaling before uploading to the display.
The newest addition to the PanelPilot range is the SGD 21-B – a low cost, low power, sunlight readable, single channel voltmeter with a sleek monochrome e-paper display. The unit is configured with the free PanelPilot B software. The software provides six templates to choose from, and users can customise labels, scaling and alarms. Modest power requirements make this display ideal for use in battery-powered handheld instruments.
